Mrs. Lauren Barbour
My name is Lauren Barbour and I have been a teacher at MCES for 12 years! For for my first 9 years, I taught Kindergarten and this will be my 3rd year in my current role running the Innovation and Technology Fab Lab. I enjoy getting to work with the entirety of students within our school! I graduated from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington in 2009 as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow with a BS in Elementary Education and Concentration in Music.
My husband Jonathan and I have been married for 11 years and we have 2 amazing sons! We enjoy spending time fishing & boating at the beach/lake, tending to our farm & cattle, and cheering for the ECU Pirates!
We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
